Convocation 2020 will be modified

The Convocation ceremonies previously scheduled for May 29, 2020 have been adapted to a virtual ceremony on June 26 due to UNBC's response to the Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). You can read the most recent statement issued by UNBC's Interim President here: Convocation Update

We are also committed to holding a traditional face-to-face ceremony for the Class of 2020 once we have received the green light to safely hold events under the guidance of federal and provincial health agencies. Regardless of the modifications being made to the Convocation event, students will still graduate and receive their parchment.

We will continue to provide updated information on the website and in direct emails to graduating students.

For more information about the university's response to COVID-19, please visit the UNBC Coronavirus website.
